I have another broadband type networking question.
At my place of work, 30 odd buildings on 1 site.
I currently have a cable (RJ45)from an as yet unknown source connected into a Netgear DG834 16 port 10/100 switch.
The 3 Dell PC's are connected to the switch as a Local area connection on Realtek PCIe GBE family controller.
Broadband is available, however I have the following problem.
More by luck than judgmment I traced the second cable, that is RJ 45d to the 16 way switch, from the rear of the BT Master socket through the building where it is connected to the Netgear router I mentioned before, this is in turn connected to the face of another BT Master socket. ISP tracked down to BT Business Broadband, account details found and a BT Buisness router supplied by BT fitted.
It was an AOL system that had been replaced by BT but there was no one at this location that knew anything.
All your info is much appreciated and again due to your continued 'unsurpassed Knowledge, I have reinstalled the network and supplied Broadband to some very happy people'
